A Vintage Waterfront Wedding at Crane's Lochaven Wilderness Lodge in Ontario, Canada

Megan Stinson (29, a Nurse) first met Alan Burleson (31, a Commercial Banker) at Megan's family fishing resort when she was eleven and he was thirteen

Megan Stinson (29, a Nurse) first met Alan Burleson (31, a Commercial Banker) at Megan's family fishing resort when she was eleven and he was thirteen. The couple dated long distance for two years before Megan moved to Pennsylvania to be with Alan.  After a Christmas engagement, the couple decided to hold their wedding at Crane's Lochaven Wilderness Lodge, the place where they first met. Since Alan is from the United States and Megan is from Canada, they couple worked together to blend their upbringings into their wedding. Their color palette was cherry red, powder blue and antique white--a nod towards the red, white and blue American flag and the red and white Canadian flag. Megan and Alan both love vintage things as well, so they incorporated a lot of vintage elements in their wedding, like the blue suitcase the soap favors (that Megan made herself!) were displayed in.

A handmade heart covered in blue yarn with a felt banner that said "Love" across the middle added charm to the wedding decor.
A white and brown bunting sign in a vintage blue suitcase invited guests to help themselves to handmade soap favors.
Megan carried a small bouquet filled with white roses.
Megan wore bright red peep toe heels, adding a pop of color to her bridal style.
Megan handmade the soap favors, which had cheeky names for each individual soap.
The flower girl wore a high collared dress and carried a small pail filled with white feathers to throw.
Megan wore a V-neck lace trumpet gown with a handmade hairpiece that she created.
Megan let her bridesmaids choose their own dresses in a powder blue color, while the groomsmen wore gray suits.
The three tier carrot cake had white frosting.
